Great Sedona Chili Cook-Off set for May 7
The Rotary Club of Sedona announces the addition of the Mayors of Sedona, Cottonwood and Clarkdale as competitors in the Sixth Annual Great Chili Cook-off Saturday, May 7 at Tlaquepaque Arts and Crafts Village, a part of the Cinco de Mayo Fiesta weekend.
There are multiple awards and challenges, which include the Judges' Award and Peoples' Choice Award going to the restaurants. All competitors will vie for the Best Booth Décor Award with the winner receiving a trophy. Challenges include the newly created Mayors' Challenge. The winning mayor will receive a chili trophy wall plaque proclaiming their community to be the Verde Valley's best chili destination and a cash prize to go to the charity of the Mayor's choice.
Each year, proceeds collected from the Chili Cook-off are used to fund Rotary charitable programs and activities.
Primary local charity benefiting from the proceeds goes to the Imagination Library which provides free books monthly to children ages 0 to 5 residing in the greater Sedona area.
